if obama shuts down the government in january, the democrats lose ten senate seats, ten of which are vulnerable in 20 # 14. a democratic senate and republican house encysts that obama extends the tax cuts. gerri: i'm not sure everybody is so sanguine. mitt romney's been called a liar for the ideas on taxation and taxes. he wants to cut taxes 20% across the board for everybody, the poor, the wealthy, the people in between. can you do that and get rid of breaks in the tax code for wealthy people and come out with anything like a balanced budget? >> well, two things. yes, you can bring in the same amount of revenue with tax reform, but, remember, republicans believe if you do marginal tax rates, you actually get more growth. when reagan cut tax rates, he added 10 million more people not work rolls than obama's spend more approach. put 10 million people to work, take in reagan's approach to the recession would have jobs, that's a lot of revenue coming to the government and growth as a result. yes, romney's proposal, cut marginal tax rates and reign in spending is what reagan did and

. i was reading a review of the 2008 town hall debate barack obama had with senator john mccain at the time. they said he was dispassionate, he ambled when he chose his words. sound familiar? so i will say this, i agree with lz, the town hall format lowers the ball. i don't think people like head to head as much. it's more about connecting with people. >> that was tom brokaw's debate in 2008. he talked about doing a town hall debate this morning on "meet the press" and he said it was very tough. he said something like, i'm paraphrasing, my condolences to candy, because it's a tough debate to do. let's talk about joe biden for a minute and go back to last week's debate. we knew "saturday night live" would have some fun. take a look. >> first of all, i want to thank center college for hosting us this evening. >> oh, boy, here we go. >> four years ago, president obama made a promise.

, when you look back at 2008, the debate between senator mccain and then senator obama, senator obama was cutting and slashing in his presentation there, he said some very strong, if not offensive things, to senator mccain. but he also said it with his back to senator mccain. and that was interesting tactic. a direct on offensive, talking to the people asking him the question and saying the god awful things he believed to be true about senator mccain's policies. >> because of that debate, there were critics that said that senator mccain never glanced at senator obama. >> and referred to him as that one, and there was mainstream pressure on that one. we're use today oprah and phil donahue and on the fox news channel and it's the sine quanon, and so policy is important. >> in the future, it's important. but do i have the ability to be friends with the person that's asking the question even though i don't agree with them. >> and you're going to be at the debate. what are you looking for. >> i'm going to be look for the ability to connect with the audience and senator now president obama
in the cincinna senate, that's longer than any other senator in the state of pennsylvania. president obama said arlen specter was always a fighter, from his days stamping out corruption as a prosecutor to his three decades of service in the senate. arlen was fiercely independent never putting party or ideology ahead of the people he was chosen to serve. >>> one of those who knew arlen specter well and covered him on capitol hill, cnn chief political correspondent candy crowley. he was also known as snarling arlen. >> he believed what he believed. he could be cranky, he didn't mush li much like -- he didn't suffer fools. he was a very smart guy. the history that he covered in his career, not just the senate, i think he was there for like 30 years, but the history, he's on the warren commission, he was one of the attorneys for the warren commission who looked into the jfk assassination, just the time he spent, all the supreme court nominees, he loved the laws, he was on the judiciary committee, he played such a pivotal role in selecting some of the supreme court justices who sit on that bench or

( applause ) >> he hasn't. he's failed. because if you want to get a piece of legislation like his health care piece through, you have to bring in big interests. he did. he brought in a.a.r.p., he brought in hospital associations, he brought in the a.m.a. in a coalition to support that. >> reporter: increasingly lobbyists aren't j
use today say, walk softly, talk softly but carry a big stick. senator obama likes to talk loudly. >> senator mccain, this is the guy who sang bomb, bomb, bomb iran. who called for the annihilation of north korea. >> all right. it's a delicate line these candidates will have to walk next week with a live studio audience right near them. >> sure. it just changes the vibe completely because you know and i know that they don't have any problem kind of challenging you, challenging a reporter, somebody that they're familiar with. they can be really tough on you and say, hey, that's not true. they don't have a problem shouting you down. but if you have a bunch of undecided voters watching you, there's a couple things. first of all, you can't be too hot. you can't be too aggressive because that vibe is bad in the room. second of all, all the theatrics of it for them. which is the you have to talk to them and you have to seem like you're relating to them. so i think it adds a whole other level of performance if you will to what they're saying. it's also very hard to evade a question that
? >> it affects it very well for president obama and all of the democrats on the ticket. senator nelson is a known quantity in florida. he has served at the state and federal level. he has done so in a very admiral way. he is a decent man. these are household figures in the nicest of ways. they are both old florida and new florida. >> ten seconds. is it going to hurt mitt romney? >> two-thirds of state legislature is republican, 80% of the congressional group is republican. connie mack is coming back. he is within five points. bill nelson has never gotten to a 50% threshold. there's still a race to get. >> thank you both so much. >> thank you. >> president obama and mitt romney are both making big promises about taxes. can uncle sam afford either candidate's plans? that's next. i was skeptical at first. but after awhile even my girlfriend noticed a difference.

tomorrow is showing how he's worked in a bipartisan way naming all the different times as a senator, a vp, that he's worked specifically with republicans to get things done. i think that's where obama differentiates himself also. i think romney and ryan are going too much partisanship. i think the one who wins the independent is a candidate. i'm really going to work with people and i've done it as vp, president and senator. >> i so hope we get to see biden, tomorrow. joe, if you're listening, be yourself. give us some jokes. give us some off color. >> i don't think he can. >> give us some gaffes. >> people like joe biden. >> they do. >> america likes joe biden. >> i like joe biden. >> by the way, joe six-pack white dudes who watch football like joe biden. >> even my dad likes joe biden. we're out of time. thanks so much. another brilliant conversation. i want to thank wolf blitzer for letting us hang out in his "the situation room." now back to wolf. >> excellent unsolicited advice pete and company. thanks very much. >>> the republican vice presidential hopeful paul ryan sat down exclusiv
, but obama is the favorite to continue. republicans would hold of the house but i think the democratic senate. it is effectively more of the same, so what do we think? the market does a little bit selling a little bit because it wants romney, and will not get romney. the fiscal cliff is the big deal, worth if you have a divided washington. last summer the debates the market fell apart so you talk about this being a trade, that is what it is, a trade until the end of november or something like that until the scal cliff comes about i think we have hot water. liz: certainly. is there a sector that looks like ii will propel the s&p more? >> it depends on how you look at it and what your timeframe is. if you said i think obama is going to win, the areas that do the best under that scenario are companies leveraged interest waits the low-end consumers attempt ttendto do better unde president, also infrastructure projects that could be people who put up everything from telephone poles to roads and people benefiting from obamacare. if you get a romney win, anything that has the burden of regulation. b
for obama care, but the house of representatives and the senate under pelosi and harry immediately exempted themselves from obama care. that is the kind of government that's crazy. if you want me to go on, i'll give you another example. the president's employment bill, the president's employment bill had provision 2a that i read myself that said it shall be an unlawful employment practice for any employment agency or any employer to fail to hire or to refer for hiring any person based upon their status as unemployed, and such unlawful practice in 2b would have been a violation of the civil rights act of 1964, and the equal employment opportunity act. those things would have immediately discouraged anybody from hiring anyone because they would have been sued no matter what. this kind of stuff is outrageously bad government by any standard whether you're a democrat or republican. it doesn't make any sense. >> steve, ron baron is standing by. he's been a long-term investor and he's got a question for you as well. ron? >> hi, steve. thanks for coming on the show. >> hi, ron. it's a pleasure. ni
for the senate, out of nowhere scott brown leading in massachusets. you said for a long time it is a 50/50 senate, if it is that way with a republican, you are the majority leader, and that way with barack obama, you are not. >> right. neil: so, where do you think they stand now. >> well, we have 8 or 10 really, really, really, really close races. neil: they have gotten closer. >> i'm looking at poll numbers every morning and there are a lot of places where it could go either way, anybody who made a confident predicted to us a month in advance, i would like to thank my mother in raising foolish children, it is a 50/50, the better governor romney does the more likely we are of a good day. neil: he is selling coattails, is he helping them? >> it helps, and some places. the presidential is irrelevant. we have a couple states where the democratic nominee is trying to get as far away from obama as possible, and places where the president is going to carry the state that we have a good chance of winning, massachusets and connecticut issue are two examples. neil: what about the swing states, now as you
, including a senator who was one of those tutoring the president, even playing the role of barack obama for that debate. what we also noticed how few democratic operatives were in that crowd not wanting to fuel any questions about what was then considered the president's lackluster performance. in a long winded way, what happens, you learn a lot in this spin room, how it's spun and how many are doing the spinning after the fact. you also learn a lot that's unique to fox business and our coverage how the foreign markets and our own future markets are responding. they had been seizing this as a good night for the republicans. i'm not saying the entire financial community is a republican crowd but by in large they espouse those positions. they were jumping during and immediately after the debate. you will be able to gauge as always market reaction and how the markets are spinning it from way outside the spin room. tracy: it is going to be fun. ashley: it really is. neil, is it really in this case more that can be lost than gained? would a good performance by either candidate make much diff
was medicare. >> why? >> because joe biden did what president obama should have done which was to look into the camera and look at me, i'm a democrat. all right? i've been in the senate for years. we're the democratic party. we believe in medicare. we believe in social insurance. do you trust me or do you trust this 40-something-kid who comes from the world of conservative think tanks scheming to get rid of the program since its beginning and inception? who do you trust? that was just the simple question. he said, look at the reputational capital that has been built up over time in those two parties over what we are going to do. and trust yourself on who is going to vouch save medicare. >> on the issue of afghanistan, it was clear paul ryan is arguing a position, passionately, that's unpopular. i mean -- >> what is the position? >> there's no -- well, he got lost in the answers on afghanistan. i don't disagree with that at all. the point is the position the vice president was arguing which is we want to have afghan forces doing that, we want less american forces doing it, that is a pos

of the senate. and it was at 80 for a long time, eamon, things went sour. and it's -- at the same time, with president obama's improving chances, this went the opposite way. >> yeah, what's interesting here, the conventional wisdom people expect a status quo election. they expect the democrats will maintain the senate. they expect that republicans will maintain the house. but it's tightening and that could go in any direction. >> did you mention ohio? >> i did not. >> that's tightened up too. >> last i saw was five points. >> and watch -- >> ten previous. >> and watch what's going on at the presidential level. because that is important even though these aren't battleground states. i looked up the spread yesterday. if you look at the 2008 election, mid-september is where obama started to really separate from john mccain. and the graph just goes away. he starts running away with it right in mid-september. the graph this year if you look at the daily tracking polls goes the exact opposite way for obama. he was -- he had a pretty wide separation with romney and now it's completely convergi
race up in massachusetts is going to play a role. you get elizabeth warren in the senate if she wins, she's obviously the most deidentify house voice against banks. maybe this will continue. obama, warren and then banks just become in a continually bad place to get a job. >> regulation of the banks is in interpretation because of dodd-frank. much of it has passed. they are adjusting to new realities. in terms of capital requirements, holding a lot more capital against businesses and transparency, things like derivatives exchanges hit to their profitable. >> you have all the institutions suing each other about the mortgage-backed bonds, it is just one group of institutional investors suing another group of institutional investors, the court is not set up to handle it. no one knows what to do. i think there's going to be billions of dollars in legal fees. that's the only winner. >> we have to check in with bob on the floor with more on what's moving this morning. hey, bob. >> good morning, everybody. happy tuesday. did you see, of course, christina la guard this morning cutting the glo
